What is Server Monitoring?
What do you do if an unexpected light comes on on your car’s dashboard or you suddenly find yourself in ‘get home mode’? We’d hope your answer is to visit a mechanic as the light is a warning that continuing your journey could be damaging to your vehicle.
But how do you know if your server and IT system are running smoothly? In a world where businesses are increasingly reliant on digital technology, it’s important to consider implementing server monitoring.
Server monitoring is like the lights on your car’s dashboard; it’s a proactive measure that detects issues in your system that could become significant problems. The process works by continuously scanning servers and the network they are connected to, checking for failures and irregularities that may cause downtime or affect productivity.
Server monitoring protects your business from disruptive downtime. Monitoring and analysing the data from your systems also ensures that your server is capable of hosting software and applications. Which enables your business to get the very best from the hardware and software in which you’ve invested.
How To Implement Server Monitoring.
Before deciding to implement server monitoring, Allteks recommend a hardware and software audit and an audit of your network infrastructure. The review provides a perfect jumping-off point for any continued data analysis. The Audit gives us the information to get your system running at its optimum capability.
Once we’ve created a good starting point, we can then begin to monitor your system, creating reports and alerts that we specifically tailor to your business’ needs and requirements. Collecting data allows us to not only pick up issues as they happen but also provide you with comprehensive advice should you need to expand your network or introduce new software and processes.
